History: The Old Greyhound Bus Terminal

Opened on March 25, 1940, the Washington Greyhound Terminal was the epitome of "motor-age architecture for motor-age transportation." The terminal provided the most efficient bus system for its time because the architect, William S. Arrasmith of Wischmeyer, Arrasmith & Elswick, designed it so that buses parked diagonally in a zigzag pattern around a freestanding island away from the ticketing booth, which allowed for a streamlined loading process.

Historical Bus Terminal Exhibit

The terminal also played a part in U.S. history. During World War II, the building served as a major transport center for military forces. Later, it was a significant destination for African Americans who were leaving the rural South to relocate to Northern urban areas.

In 1983, the Art Deco Society of Washington, the Committee of 100 and the Federal City, and the D.C. Preservation League lobbied for the old Greyhound bus building to be saved. After a lengthy battle, the building was designated a Historic Landmark of D.C. in 1987. You can learn more about the history of the building by visiting the displays located in the building's lobby.
